Summer Meltdown Music Festival


Darrington Music Park Venue in Darrington, WA! As one of the most scenic venues in the entire United States, our venue is a hidden secret, known mostly for its 30+ years of hosting the Darrington Bluegrass Festival. After several relocations in Summer Meltdown’s early years, this perfect venue was discovered. Between a glacier capped mountain and a calm lazy river, the venue is a 40 acre natural playground. The venue offers shaded camping under douglas fir trees, onsite parking, swimming and hiking, and a built-in amphitheater bowl. Our location is an hour and half northeast of Seattle, or southeast of Bellingham. The Darrington Music Park is owned by Darrington Bluegrass and the County Music Makers Association.

Summer Meltdown Music Festival is where The Music meets The Mountain August 2-5, 2018! Summer Meltdown is a music, camping, and adventure festival in Darrington, WA – an hour and a half into the Cascade mountains from Seattle and Bellingham.

Summer Meltdown is known for it’s vibrant community that is open to all ages – from the kids zone, to the late night tent, to lounging in the beer garden – this festival offers fantastic experiences for everyone.
